Brief History of the Supplementary Minerals

Shuessler had discovered the key minerals (macro minerals) that the body uses. At the turn of the century, his successors continued his work and added additional minerals to the list of remedies, based on developments in science, research and medicine.

Three men were instrumental in the introduction of the supplementary remedies.

Eric Graf von der Goltz introduced ten compounds, one had its composition altered later.

Dr Med Albert Reiff (1863-1928) supported introducing four supplementary remedies. He studied the biochemic healing method and became a close friend of Schuessler.

Dietrich Schopwinkel (a876-1946) was a biochemist who analysed other minerals that naturally existed in the body, and their functions.
